The Teal Pumpkin Project

If your child has food allergies, you're always on the lookout. With the exchange of lots of different food types, Halloween can be an especially worrisome event. To help ease parents ª minds, and raise awareness of food allergies, houses in the Twin Cities, and other cities across the country, will be participating in the Food Allergy Research and Educations (FARE) new Halloween tradition the Teal Pumpkin Project FARE.                    

The new campaign encourages families to provide non-food treats like Halloween pencils, glow sticks, bracelets or bubbles for trick-or-treaters. To show your participation, FARE asks that you paint a pumpkin teal the color of food allergy awareness and place it in front of the house or in a well-lit window. In addition, FARE also has two free printable signs that indicates whether you have non-food treats or non-food and candy treats available. Interested in learning more?
